for riders and horses at all levels on or on the facebook page

Sylvia is to be presented with her medal for the Order of Merit from the Portuguese President

at the Portuguese Embassy in London on 12th April 2016.  A great honour for a British person.  This is in recognition

of her commitment to the Lusitano Horse over many decades from the formation of the Lusitano Breed Society

of Great Britain in 1984 to her many published  books, DVDs and her promotion of classical riding.

British Dressage Convention


In 2013 Sylvia celebrated the publishing of THE BALANCED HORSE with a wonderful Foreword by Carl Hester... something else equally special happened. She was approached by Richard Davison and Carl - to be one of their Guest Trainers at the British Dressage Convention. The other 'outside' Trainer was Miguel Ralao Duarte of the Portuguese School of Equestrian Art - a highly respected rider and another participant was Charlotte dujardin. Sylvia couldn't have been happier to be part of this, since the coming together of competition with classical training represents everything that she has worked for.

If you would like to find out more about The Dressage Convention a DVD was made of the day and is available to buy from, it is certainly worth purchasing a copy:

 The Ethics and Passion of Dressage by - Charles de Kunffy  - Foreword by Sylvia Loch


Charles de Kunffy will be no stranger to CRC Members and we strongly recommend this updated and much extended version of his original book.  Every aspect of horsemanship is touched upon here with all the traditional ethics succinctly explained and always reinforced by well proven classical principles.  Purchase your copy here.
